Happy STAR TREK Day … from Spock and Me!

 As you’ve probably heard, September 8 is a big hoop-de-doo day.  On September 8, 1966, Star Trek premiered.  Along with Jonny QuestThe Man from U.N.C.L.E., and The Adventures of Superman, it was a big influence on my growing up—if you allege that ever happened.

In July, 1980, family member Spock chose to investigate the concept of Sleep Learning.  After all, if it worked for Edgar Cayce, why not for the world’s best dog?  So he went to dreamland with his head cradled on some LPs in our inventory.

Directly under his schnozzola is the two-LP soundtrack for The Empire Strikes Back.  And to the left of that is a Peter Pan Star Trek story record.

You can see that Star Trek has passed down to many generations of the family. See you Monday.

Some Notes About Kandor

While in my younger decades, I took many notes about things found in DC comics of the Silver Age. From 1990, here's a page of my notes about Kandor.
Of course, regarding Superman #158, I knew whereof I spoke.
I've lived with this puppy a long time.  Vide the portrait taken by Mom:
That's a plate of cinnamon toast on the left, my Kitty on the right, and my six-year-old self in the middle, with one of the best comics ever.

A few Super Blog posts regarding this comic:

Anyway, study my notes on the Bottle City of Kandor and write a nice long note on how it's now presented in the comics, compared and contrasted with the Silver age version.  Get those papers turned in by next Thursday!

Otherwise, I'll have to write something for Thursday!  Either way, see you then!
